Thumb Up

Slap a camera on the front and a hook of some sort on the back, and you've got the just the tool I've dreamed about for running new wires through existing walls. (Network cable, telephone line, power cab<zzzrt>)

The best sci-fi film never made: Also-rans take a bow

Wish I'd remembered...

I wanted to nominate Keith Laumer's "Once There Was a Giant" for this as well. Not as upbeat as some of his Retief novels, but a good story just the same.

So, what's the best sci-fi film never made?

Obscure Titles

Back in 1979 / 1980, Brian Daley wrote some pre-Star Wars stories dealing with Han Solo's earlier career - they were pulp, but highly entertaining pulp. Any of the three would probably work well with a title change:

* Han Solo at Stars' End

* Han Solo's Revenge

* Han Solo and the Lost Legacy

Alternately, almost any of James White's "Sector General" series could be entertaining as well.

* Hospital Station

* Ambulance Ship

* Final Diagnosis

... the list goes on.
